Addiction Recovery Counselor

Available for Online Therapy

Depression is a common co-occurring issue with addiction. Most of the time you are self-medicating depression with addictive behavior. Why does your system "depress"? For most people (unless you have an organic brain disease or injury) depression is situational. When you address the underlying issues surrounding the situation and start doing the next right thing the depression lifts.

Research shows that the most effective treatment for depression is psychotherapy. Depression can range from feeling down to major symptoms such as having trouble even getting out of bed or contemplating suicide (if you have suicidal thoughts or plans, call the National Suicide Prevention Line at 1-800-273-8255). Online counseling is effective for depression because it is easy to access: you can start treatment without even leaving the house.

My approach is to listen with compassion and for you to know you are not alone.

2500 Wilcrest Dr. Suite 410, Houston, Texas

Bad days come and go but they do not necessarily have to stay. When medication does not seem to be enough talking to someone can help. I have worked with many individuals that have struggle with depression and though the course of therapy have described a sensation of "fog" lifting. Depression has many origins, such as early childhood attachment or recent losses. It has been my experience that the most efficient way to come out of depression is to explore and understand one's symptoms.

If you find yourself with more than just occasional "blues," depression may be making you feel out-of-touch with life. If you have depression, it is important to remember that you are not your diagnosis. Depression is not all of who you are. You are so much more. Sometimes you are caught in depression because of the ways that you think and because you have limiting beliefs. Working together, we can challenge what holds you back and help you move forward again, with depression in the rear view mirror.

We all experience times when we feel sad or depressed. When we feel this way it can be an important clue that something in our life needs to be changed. Some people have a biological condition which can cause depression. People may experience intense sadness. Others have a Bipolar Disorder and may feel high or even experience difficulty sleeping, anxiety and racing thoughts. We help you explore what was going on in your life when your depression started and unravel the reasons for your symptoms. In some cases medication may be needed. If necessary, we will collaborate with you and your doctor to help you to stabilize your mood, increase your confidence and work towards a happier future.

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

Grey Matters International, Inc. and the work of Kevin J. Fleming, Ph.D. handles depression and other emotional disorders in a very unique way. Most of therapy or counseling processes utilize validation, unconditional positive regard, and reframing as common techniques to get someone to heal from their depression. Though this can be helpful, it rarely fixes the core problem behind it and for tough cases we then refer them usually to a psychiatrist for medication which can have tons of side effects. Instead, why not try a natural and arguably more effective way to not just change your mind, but change the brain--where the depression is rooted. Contact us at

Kathy Pardue, MA, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

4801 Woodway Dr., Houston, Texas

I help clients identify the source of depression as situational, chemical, or both. Chronic stress can deplete serotonin in the brain, and healing involves cognitive therapy (evaluating what you are "thinking" and what you are "doing") and possibly medication. When you're in a dark cave, you need someone to come in and sit with you. Client's mood improves as they narrate thoughts and feelings. We generate a counseling plan together to help redirect focus and energy.

Depression Counselor

Rune Moelbak, Ph.D.

Clinical Psychologist

3400 Bissonnet St #270, Houston, Texas

Depression is very common place and often does not have the same root. I help you discover the unique factors that are responsible for your own sense of inadequacy, hopelessness, low self-worth, or lack of interest and motivation. Rather than simply focusing on your symptoms or advocating the use of medication, I help you understand what is internal resources are blocked inside of you that stop you from living a more fulfilling life. I see depression not as a disorder or an illness, but as an invitation to examine your life and make changes that will get you more in line with your true feelings and desires.
